Contacts Sidebar broken in Thunderbird 15

Unfortunately Contacts Sidebar is not compatible with the recently released Thunderbird 15.
When showing the sidebar a XML parsing error is shown, instead of the sidebar:
Tb 15 error message

Without making promisses, I hope to have a fix available soon.
Did you already consider to donate?

Contacts Sidebar for Thunderbird 5, part 1

As promised a first new version of the Contacts Sidebar add-on compatible with Thunderbird 5. Mind you that this is a first version for Tb5 and I did very little test work. If you find any issues, which are not in the list of known issues, please notify me.

Thank you all....

It took only 10 days... Never expected so many people in such a short time to donate. This support is very much appreciated.
Soon I will update my add-ons and add them to my web site. In the mean time, you can still donate ;-)

Consider this for a moment....

Since June 15, 2011 I have received many requests to make my add-ons compatible with Firefox 5 and Thunderbird 5. I do understand people ask this as they like my extensions, which I appreciate.
However, I have been working on my add-ons for 7 years now. Spend many hours, for free, but times have changed. I do not have the time as I used to have. No, this does not imply I stop developing my add-ons, but...
I have decided to ask for donations before I continue work. When €200,- is donated, I will continue and make the add-ons compatible with the latest Firefox and Thunderbird version. I hope you respect my point of view.
Check the "Donation meter" on the left for the current status.

Thanks in advance.
